was the chairman of the commerce manufacturing trade subcommittee for the energy and commerce committee and representative coming you just held a hearing recently on apps. what was the point of the hearing? >> to make sure that we explore what is going on in this area and there are so many jobs being created and we want to make sure any policies we put forward in washington don't squash the ballooning industry. ten years ago, 15 years ago, nobody thought of this. it's a relatively new industry that has been unleashed because of great ideas and we certainly don't want the government to come and destroy that. >> what were some of the problems that you saw in this area that he would like to address? >> one of the biggest problems is the work force. they are still looking for more people to move into this industry to develop that and work on creating the applications and all that goes into. that's the biggest problem that fewer people have that somehow in washington we are going to decide your way to tell liver but how to do their business or how not to do their business and hurt a growing

's what. the consumer report for educational technology health insurancing the energy around the world develop better tool for teachers. i think the panelists got it right in terms what we're trying to do. a few points that we're thinking about first the issue about power. who controls it? the person who controls the platform will have a enormous platform. we need to be careful. we are going to be careful about conflict of interest. we're not going to allow anyone to make investments in educational technology companies. consumer reports have a great online of the interest rules. they don't take free samples, for example. we're going to have the circles in place to make sure that we're not biasing the test result and the rutlez. when you do that the swhoal system falls apart. that's something we're talking about. the second thing we brought up is about equity. it's an important issue when you're thinking about technology in the classroom, the issue around the digital dwoid. one thing we're happy with is the ability to pick up what we call energy treatment effects. that's the worry one t
of the revolutionary state in pursuit of nuclear weapons. the problem with pakistan and india being civilian energy as a springboard for getting nuclear weapons. and the third one, specialized problem of small powerful ability as evidenced by what is called electromagnetic pulse. i'll talk about that when we get to it. and the implications for missile defense. and then from then i will move on to conclude. in the case of iran, which i think we can say this every now again in the nose, and i saw just yesterday a story about will israel deliver an october surprise. the fundamental problem here is, is the possibility of a cuban missile crisis in the middle east. and to understand this, we briefly go back to what nikita khrushchev had in mind. khrushchev, in 1961, met in june with president kennedy, the enemy. and he pushed kennedy a round. kennedy himself said later he really beat me up. he decided that kennedy was not up to it, and kennedy said what about the possibility of -- i'm paraphrasing not having a transcript in front of me -- what about the possibility of miscalculation? you have to be caref
energy capital of, of the united states. and that's why i think we need to do everything we can to bolster tourism because it's still the backbone of our economy. when it comes to issues that effect the state of nevada, our delegation has worked very, very well together. let me give you an example. yucca mountain. it doesn't matter what party you're in, what side of the aisle. the fact of the matter is that the nevada delegation stood fast when it came to protecting the people of the state of nevada from acquiring nuclear waste from the rest of the country. i think that's one good example. when it comes to other things, i worked very closely and across the aisle with people every day when it comes to our support for israel, when we insure that the iranians don't acquire nuclear weapons, and i think i would work with anybody to make sure that we got our economy back on track, to get our budget under control and we end wasteful spending. >> moderator: okay, thank you. senator heller? heller: rick, thanks for the question. i appreciate the opportunity to talk about something i thin
to we want to have energy diversity and efficiency and limit the emissions put into the environment. and that policy is in complemented by a series of subsidies and or tax relief and or credit, however you want to think about it, to encourage that policy. we, as citizens, get paid or get a tax credit for write-off of driving the fuel efficient and electric car, right? you get to go on the high occupancy vehicle lane with an electric car. it's an incentive to buy a fuel efficient and or a car that meets the energy policy of the country. as citizens we also get a tax write-off if we buy fuel efficient windows and heating and cooling systems. businesses like the potomac and others that are probably in the room today they also get tax write-offs for buying and installing energy-efficient fuel efficient, lower emission heating and cooling systems, windows etc and their businesses and adopting more green policies and diversified energy policies. and then third, for those businesses to try to encourage innovations again there's a 17% tax credit for research and development for a new techno
of mexico, he has served as a deputy in mexico's federal chamber of deputies and as secretary of energy. he will leave office in december, remembered as the president who built the most universities 96. the 16,000 kilometers of highways, the bridge that connects mexico's two coasts, providing faster access and therefore more efficient trade and the passage of the first employment act, which provides incentives for companies to hire people just entering the workforce. he also faced a daunting challenge of the violence by the drug cartels that left 50,000 people dead. a poll taken just this past august showed his approval rating about 64%. we are so honored to have the president of mexico here with us. and mr. president, we welcome you to this podium and look forward to your remarks.

e banks and e commerce riding on the intrntd. we're moving toward a future of having the energy distribution on a smart grid connect requested internets. we're moving to a generation of next generation aviation and air traffic controller that's controlled by the internet and over the internet. and so we have moved so much of our essential servicings on to the internet and one has to ask, is that what it was designed for? and is it secure for what we need for in the future? this brings about three tensions i'm going try to stick to three. so three tensions that we're seeing in the policy world. and three tensions that we've seen in the technology world. the first is we're seeing a tension from the need from the economic policy to stimulate the economy versus the demands for national security. ict and the economic growth that the internet commerce of our country is measured nearly 4% gdp growth. that's the smallst in the nation right now. that's what the g20 countries are expecting. developing nations are expecting the ict and the e economy to contribute to as much as 10% of the g
hope is never, the price of oil and the price of energy was to skyrocket more than it is at the moment. but you could take pretty much any area of the world where there are latin complex, not that want to minimize iran clearly, but all such conflicts could themselves entail economic consequences that we have to be mindful of when we model. i don't want to sort of list those parts of the world where conflicts could arise and would have consequences, but this is, you know, as beckett used to say, this is life and his no cure for that. [laughter] >> next question. >> hello, thank you for your talk this morning. i'm with china centric television in washington, d.c. and my question is regarding china but in relation to the global financial crisis, what policy decisions and actions which are like to see from china in the coming months? >> i think policy decisions have been announced already very much so. i'll distinguish between short-term and medium-term. short term there's an announcement of stimulus that apparently gives towards yet more for structure projects, more public spending, some

also written my book have been in the area of gender. i have written a lot also in energy economics and in taxation. i'm a monthly column nist for this. i edited a bock called overcoming barriers to imeerpship. i wouldn't say it's a radical thing. social security something i've been thinking about it and writing about far long time. thank you for joining us on booktive. >> it's great to be with you. >> coming up from booktv coverage from the annual libertarian contest. economist george talks about new edition of the 1981 best selling book. this is just over thirty minutes. [inaudible conversations] george, you have a new audition of "wealth and poverty" how. has country changed since the original came out. >> it habit changed auto. we have a new carter in office and president obama so most of the themes that of
it's a pal in the country in a lot of ways. it would be huge. if we got a grand bargain on energy how to exploit the boundary of -- i think the two together would have a huge impact. so the question is how close are we to that? and, you know, i have a saying about the middle east which applies to the american politics. all important politics happens the morning after the morning after. >> when is that? >> here i'm talking about the election. here i think the question really is i don't know how the election is going come out. i make no prediction. i ask myself if romney gets smashed, if he gets smashed, it would -- i happen to think the political problem in the country we have a center left party and we have a far right party. that is a structure problem. the republican party has gone nuts in my view. >> analytical judgment. [laughter] >> they've been simultaneously they have been at war with mas and physics at the same time. [laughter] on the deficit, it was, you know, deficit doesn't matter. and yeah and biology too a guy in missouri too. so the question to me is what happens the mor
energy in the u.s. and around the world and use it to give teachers better tools and consumer report for educational technology to educate the entrepreneurial energy developing better schools so the panel has got it right in terms of what we are trying to do. the issue about power. who controls -- the person who controls that platform will have the enormous power. we will see conflict of interest to make investments in educational technology companies at the very basic level. consumer reports has a great outline of these conflict of interest rules. they don't take free samples. to make sure we are not biasing test results and the whole system starts to fall apart. the second thing is equity. it is an important issue when thinking of technology. one thing we are happy with is the ability to pick of treatment effects. that is the worry that might work for one group of kids but not another. you can actually pick that up and figure out what works for each kid. personalized learning and a revolution in health care. some equity issues contribute to mitigating those and that will be a big p
day we could change the energy market. one thing i address of the book is israelis are now doing a pilot we tried to use our brain to find other solutions for energy. >> i am and israeli. born and raised their. i served in the armed forces. i am argumentative. [laughter] but this is not the forum for arguments. i am also a guest. we're not supposed to attack all the you tend to be greatly. [laughter] >> we could do that in israel. >> come to my house. not everybody in israel of course, is an agreement with you. smart people. i have a very simple question. israel is a mighty country. the strongest country in the middle east. it has the attache of weapons that they have obtained like the is to do to obtain arms in my days under the british. deal think there is a bit of connection between israel being a nuclear power and other nations in the middle east? >> first of all, you know, when you put to do giuseppe room you have three opinions. [laughter] it is okay to argue. i am with the likud party and a majority of israelis supported us in the last election. >> we will support you aga
there. we should embrace washington to build a clean energy industrial place in the states that weekend solves systems that are fossil fuel based. solar energy, wind energy, energy efficiency, silicon energy, the most doable made the world today is in washington we have to make sure we do that. >> moderator: we have a short amount of time, so we want to give a quick rebuttal. >> mckenna: luck, there will be impacts on trains. the question is are they stopping in our state to unload not on only cool, but wheat and other commodities or will they rule through our state to british columbia or other destinations? let's go to the review, carefully weigh costs and benefits and i think we'll have a clear idea if these are products we won or not. >> moderator: one more rebuttal, mr. inslee. 30 seconds. >> inslee: let me emphasize that i last talked about. we are at a revolution in the world do we know the world will look for huge amounts of clean energy. this is right in our wheelhouse. this is what we do so well in washington. this clean energy future has washington written all over it. >> mode
of energy around this book, but the last time there was this media energy was then, july 2010 when it went down. >> yes. >> you were going back to the places who interviewed you who were making those accusations, calling you a reverse racist. the speed of which that happened, how does it feel now that you have the whole story? >> it feels good to know that first of all i was able to use that same media in the sense to be able to get the story, the right story out. i can't explain how great it feels to be able to sit here and to hear the actors really, oh, my goodness, i don't know whether you saw me, i was crying. it's really amazing. i didn't ever think -- i made the decision years ago that i didn't want people to forget my father and what he meant to us. i had no idea i would be able to tell the story in this way. it feels great. >> what's so beautifuls about this book is that it's a living history. it's like a love letter to choices reminding us that without the feelings, the facts don't convey enough of what a history has been. >> yes. >> and that is brutal as the history of african-am
maximize the energy and talent and value of their supporters doing things on their own to other voters. >> host: there's going to be the swing states where this election is going to be divided i would imagine all of the stuff you are talking about is going to be focused like a laser on some of those states. can you just remind us what the states are and is that true most of these techniques are going to be targeted. >> guest: in more less a dozen states now we may move from week to week. one thing that is important to think to realize is that not all swing states are equal or a light. we tend to think of them interchangeably and to see the set of pulling has a bunch of states that are all between 46 to 49% and the campaigns are on the air and the swing states are all serve in the same category, and campaigns are deciding where to compete and how they can compete based on vocals and this is a central strategic document in the campaign. what i learned about the 2008 campaign, david clough recalls bible, this binder this targeting desk put together that had the vocals and they put them to
but also maximize the energy and talent and value of their supporters doing things on their own to other voters. >> host: i would imagine all the stuff that you're talking about is meant to be focused on the states. can you just remind us what those states are. most of the techniques are going to be termed. >> guest: the states may move from week to week. one thing that is important to realize it is not all swing states are equal or alike and i think we tend to think of them interchangeably and see a set of polling has a bunch of states there but between 46 to 49% and the campaigns are on the air so they are swing states and they are all in the same category. campaigns are deciding where they compete and how they compete and this is the sort of central strategic document of the campaign and what i learned about the 2008 campaign david clough would call this his bible that targeting is put together that had the vocals and everyone in the state. for each state they would have the total they needed to win and they predicted 53%, that is a little bit of a buffer to sort of guarantee the marg
, regulatory, and energy policies to get the country ascending again. >> a one minute rebuttal. >> it's demeaning to suggest issues with women are just social and not economic. they are economic issues. the status of the relationship, if they can't have a relationship recognized, inability to get insurance policy, inability to get other benefits, less favorable tax treatment, that's an economic issue. with respect to women, if you force women to have an ultrasound procedure against their will and pay for it, that's an economic issue. if you deny women the opportunity because of personhood legislation, to make constitutional choices, even including whether to purchase contraception, that's an economic issue. when george allen was in congress, he repeated voted against family medical leave act. he's supported the blunt amendment to enable employers to take away contraceptive coverage for their employees. these are women's issues, but they are bigger than that. they are family issues, and they are economic issues, and it's demeaning to suggest the little social issues we don't need to sp
eyes, fresh energy and fresh set of ideas, and i want azeri to join me in getting missouri back to work. >> $24 million, that is with the budget for missouri will be next year, the state income tax money and the fed to all but $24 billion of other people's tax money sitting in jeff city. we have a problem with the revolving door where legislatures when their term is up turn around and become lobbyists. why do we have that problem? $24 billion of other people's tax money. the major parties spend millions of parties on their campaigns. why is that? why did people contribute millions of dollars to their campaign? because whoever wins will have control of $24 billion of other people's tax money. the special interest groups spend a lot of energy and resources, school administrators , a whole host of special interest groups, contractors, corporations. we all spend the lot of time and effort trying to influence legislators to get back some of that $24 billion. it's a waste of time. it's a big game to everybody. it's a bpt the taxpayers who hae supported. you know, the state has an obligation t
? >> i thought the convention was fantastic. but the there was an energy on the ground. in terms of what i have learned and experienced in the last year-and-a-half, it truly has been -- the biggest thing in terms of our primary is that it was really a testament to the grassroots. in any other cycle, what happened in the republican primary could not have happened. in any ordinary year, the should have been a very easy lay down. we were out-spent three-one. when we started, i was a 2%. >> the primaries back in march. you may not be sitting here. >> thank god for small miracles. >> you published an opinion piece in "the wall street *" this week where you say that america is that a crisis point. can you explain that to? >> i think we are at a fiscal and economic cliff. i think we have pursued government spending programs that have created a debt that is out of control. at the convention come after talking, i went home to my hotel at 1:30 a.m. and i was looking on my iphone at twitter. and the comedian paula pound stone had sent a tweet that evening. i don't know her, but she said " ted cruz
them. [laughter] >> but you mentioned oil and natural gas. >> yeah, let's take energy, let's just take the energy sector because it's an example where you already have ferc, and it has its regulatory authorities, some of which already touch on cyber. so when we do a deep dive, we're looking at, well, what's already happening in that particular sector. do the -- >> and do you look at, too, if it's any good? >> absolutely. have we actually done what we need to do -- >> yeah. >> -- to make sure the sector is as secure as possible. >> um, and do you think that this -- first of all, i want to qualify, is it going to be a new executive order or an expansion on directives that have already been put into place? >> again, i don't want to go into too much detail here, but i would say it is in the format of a new order. >> okay, okay. and are you still hopeful about legislation in the long term too? >> i think we have to. as i said, the executive can only do so much. legislation does need to be addressed. i think one of the benefits of the debate in congress this past spring and summer was, i mea
, talk about the energy department, faa, to expand the regulations? or maybe what you're talking about offer more incentives, insurance has been discussed, federal, earning more federal contracts if you keep your systems up to a certain level security. >> indemnity on pc would be of benefit to industry, to be able to have that capability if they comply with a risk-based standards. and that's really what we're talking about. when we look at breaching of data, for instance, in our team, and verizon can we as a process called evidence-based risk management. so it's not what we think is out the. it's what we actually identify and then what we can correct. so if we take that type of approach between government and industry and not try to gold plate everything and have the perfect network, but have a risk-based management approach that says i can assume risk at this certain level based on the consequences of a breach, then we could put programs and policies in place that enable security as opposed to inhibit security. >> i think that organizations are looking for guidance and standards but i
in green energy companies like solyndra and test lot. a friend of mine said he doesn't dislike picking winners and losers, he likes losers. [laughter] [cheers] [applause] >> i believe in strengthening our military. [cheers] [applause] we have seen it for four years. we have seen a number of people on food stamps go from 32 million up to 37 million. 15 million people have fallen into poverty and need food stamps. twenty-three million americans looking for jobs. we have had 43 straight months of unemployment above 8% read what does the president have to say about this? he says forward. i think forewarned is a better term. [laughter] [applause] [cheers] >> we listen to the president at his convention a few weeks ago. no new ideas. he is out of ideas and excuses and on november 6, you're going to put him out of office. [cheers] [applause] [cheers] [applause] now, paul ryan and die, we have a different path that we put america on. there are five things that we will do to strengthen our economy. and also to create 12 million new jobs and rising take-home pay. you realize over the last four y
of president obama in the real energy he brought on the campaign trail in 2083 question of transparency in the good government we all envision. from my hit by 2010, that energy had dissipated. a lot of efforts had gone towards a lot of things and we were seen the dramatic transformation that a lot of us can visualize and imagine knowing that the power of data is, but it wasn't happening very much. and that caused me to do some work and i will describe here that results in some greeting. grading is a cool cruel art. what i did is look at the problem of lacking transparency. it looked to me like maybe the transparency community had communicated well enough what it was we wanted. a lot of efforts have gone out there that didn't have direction or designation. so i sat down to some technical people. i am a lawyer, so i have to go back and learned about how these computers work, talking to each other on the internet in things like that. i sat down with them data people to interpret and language that policymakers could understand what it was the data people need and in a paper that most of you
. that is not momentum. i bring fresh ideas and energy and a fresh set of ideas and i want azeri to join me in getting missouri back to work. >> moderator: jim higgins? higgins: $24 billion. that is what the budget for missouri will be next year. the state income tax money, some of it comes from the fed, but it is $24 billion of other people's tax money sitting in the city. we have a problem with the revolving door where the legislature when the term is up the turnaround and become lobbyists. why do we have the problem? $24 million of other people's tax money. the major problem spends millions of dollars on their campaigns. why is that? why did people contribute millions of dollars to their campaign? because whoever wins will have control of the $24 billion. of other people's tax money. the special-interest groups spend a lot of energy and resources. you know, school administrators, special-interest groups, contractors, corporations, they all spent a lot of time and effort trying to influence the registry church to get back to $24 billion it's a waste of time it's a big game to everybody except the ta
is take over the edge for normal energy and innovation coming out of the u.s., but around the world and use it to give teachers better schools in the classroom. it's consumer reports for educational technology, the innovation energy around the world to develop their tools for teachers and complement the work they do in the classroom. the panelists got it right in terms of what we do. a few points worth thinking about hard as first the issue about power, who controls edu star? the person who controls the platform will have enormous power and the need to be careful. our proposal now is to set this up as a five o. one c. three piece were not going to allow anyone to edu star to make investments in educational technology companies. consumer reports is a great outline. they don't take examples. we will make sure that were not bypassing results. if you. if you got the whole system falls apart, so that is something we think a lot about. the second thing karen brought up in dennis is about equity. so it's really important issue you can do that to elegy and issues around the digital divide.
on green jobs and alternative energy is imposing costs on america's economy. cause that's come proponents of green jobs are not acknowledging. >> and for the most part you have written a lot about the gender policies in politics and is this a branch out for you to write about green jobs? >> i am have also written -- my books have been in the area of gender but i have written a lot also on energy economics and taxation. i have edited a book called overcoming various entrepreneurship and that was published by roland and littlefield. that was a radical change and something i have been thinking about them writing about for a long for longtime. >> thank you for joining us on booktv. >> it was great to be here. thanks so much for having me on. >> joining us on booktv is donald luskin, "i am john galt" is the name of this book. today's heroic innovators building the world and the villainous parasites destroying it. first of all mr. luskin who is john galt? >> who is john galt? that is the slogan from "atlas shrugged," an amazing book with 55 years ago could have been written yesterday. it perfec

[inaudible] >> we can do that in israel. [laughter] >> come back to my house, and we can do this. [laughter] not everyone in israel is in agreement with you. there are many experienced people, smart people, those that don't hold on to your point of view. i have a very serious question. israel is a mighty country it is the strongest country in the middle east israel has the cachet of modern weapons and for many years, they were obtained by groups like we used to do to obtain arms in my young days under the british men. do you think that there is any bit -- a
converted into a renewable energy woodchip fired power plant that could involve some interaction on the part of the managing of the company with opportunities that may exist at the state and local level for financing. the relationship between an employer and employees is a very special one and it is not necessarily derived from washington or some program. small employers look round around the community and technical colleges and they look to other places to provide education internal training programs so they can recruit people into their company and they get to deduct those from their taxes. i certainly think it is important to have a level of federal involvement and federal training. the real relationship is not the federal government providing through some sort of a program from washington. but it is a combination of these things, and it involves employers. i am a manufacturer myself. we have gone out to look for people and we work with technical schools and other schools in the area. i will never forget when i got involved in dublin, new hampshire. they had a program that was a carter er
to economic success, and reform in non-budgetary areas such as health care, energy, immigration, k-12 education, and so much else. there are, as you know, enormous policy differences in all of these areas, but substantively they could be bridged to move forward effectively in each area. however, that will only happen if our elected officials are in the final analysis committed to effective governance. and that means working across party lines, different opinions, to make lyrically tough decisions. and that takes us to today's program. any strategy for the long-term success of the american economy must focus on k-12 education in today's highly competitive global economy. there's an enormous amount of activity, as all of you know, going on in that area. and with the purpose of contributing to that activity, the hamilton project has conducted two events on k-12 education with papers and panel discussions, and today is her third event. let me outline a program but first let me strongly recommend the paper that is in your folders entitled the dozen facts about k-12 education. paper present
in and in an instant it is change and the senate is the center of governmental energy and creativity. the founding fathers wanted -- he is majority leader for six years. at the end of six years he leaves and the senate is back in the same mess. the nature of political genius is to find a way when no way appears obvious. i don't have any idea what president johnson would do with this congress. hopefully i can research and find out but someone will come along to do it again. >> one of the major events that occurred was the u.s. role in the overthrow -- johnson is on record in the cabinet meetings opposing it. can you elaborate on what particularly drove his stance and what particularly was it on that and why he believed the way he did on that point? one of the things he agreed with robert kennedy on. >> can i take a pass on that one question? it is at the beginning of the book i writing now. the answer is so complicated and i don't have a summation of it on my mind right now. >> can i go back and referred to your book you are talking about now? you alluded when you stated the united states was runni

[laughter] so the next passage something that should never have to happen. a few months later anabel has rounded up some of her best students to go to the middle school. it was like scores are coming up and they need to show the middle school students they have a reason to come to reagan high. this will also include at the start athlete at the school at the time now at i was stay on a football scholarship. anabel hurried out to the bus where the band had a solid rhythm going. she counted heads. first athlete turned up in sandals. where are your shoes? i don't have any he said. you will wear mine. what size? fourteen. she passed around fliers of the electives we have every sport except swim team. we need us wh
there and market share in the united states of america. so trade is essential, and i was focused much energy as i could on trade. at the same time, there are things you have to do before you can really get a solid trading relationship. do you have corporate commercial law and according to economic system so that it that this will become -- and the capital is safe? do you have democratic courts so that there is recourse of law, if any problems arising trade? this has been a major problem, some of the emerging countries of europe, the russians still don't quite understand the law with respect to trade. so trade is important, but there are other needs that countries have. we can help a great deal and they are receptive to reverse institutions here in the united states to help organize courts, helping organize elections, help them organize legislative bodies. i think we have to work very hard to see if we can help them with her education systems. one of the great deficiencies throughout the world, especially indiana states as well, but in that part of the work is educating youngsters for 21st century
we have a number of publications outside that we study all of them. energy security, nuclear security, climate change, american competitiveness, asymmetric terrorism among others. so i would encourage you to go on the web site and look at them and see how we take it from the perspective we put it in there. we put out the facts. we don't balance it one way or the other. today we are so pleased to have rose here. let me lay out a few ground rules as you can tell c-span is here and they are going to analyze it for us. rose will get up and talk for 15 or 20 minutes i presume and then we will have a q&a to lend dignity but would otherwise be i will choose who will speak and we will have a microphone over on that side of the room so you will have to come over and queue up to the microphone. when you ask a question please identify yourself and try to keep it a little bit short. we are here to listen to rose and not necessarily to you. if you would do that we can get as many people and as we can. most of the familiar with rose speed integration is designated as the undersecretary for arms con
. smelling -- swelling their roles . soaring gas prices and green energies games. the fast and furious to bought the land cover-up, the president's attack on the catholic, congress, and the constitution, standing by as iranians died. abandoning israel, hauling of the american military, resetting the russian-born, ignoring border security and a ballot to china, ignoring the north tarriance, named a stay in the hairspring, get no, and the trials of terrorists, that partisanship of the chicago. unilateralism of an anti constitutional president, the fumbler and chief and his teleprompter dependents and finally a number of rounds of golf he has played, the argument and followed by the decline in despair rhetoric. it is a pretty good list. it is a pretty good list. [applause] em, what i wanted to do is to equip people with fund backs and no and tell. i'm not going to run through them all, but i'll give you a couple. in january of 2009 the president's council on economic and rises put out a report that the president later referenced and endorsed that said that is guaranteed that if the stimul
their strategy but also maximize the energy and the talent and the value of their supporters doing things on their own for other voters. >> host: there is going to be the swing states where this election is going to be decided i would imagine all of the stuff you are talking about is going to be focused on in some of the states. can you remind us what those states the states are and is that true, that most of these techniques are going to be just targeted? >> guest: yeah, and i think more states and may move week to week. one thing to realize is that not all swing states are equal. or alike and i think we tend to think of them as interchangeable and tend to think of this at a polling as a bunch of states are between 46 and 49% in the campaigns are swing states, they are all sort of the same category. .. >> what that the is strategically you do different things in each state. you go to different parts of the state. it may look out were the best of the campaign competes equally but i am sure they were thinking where they put good tv ad on the obama campaign one little example there was the
. kaiser was young, ms. kaiser had time and energy to spare and apparently tables too. [laughter] anna belle had been like ms. kaiser once, in another life, it seemed. can you tell carmen to lasso those teachers up? i told them, do not move furniture. then she hurried the talk along. ordinary drama made for a pleasant distraction, and after that there was still the matter of the squirrel eating through i.t. cables to address. after the meeting anna belle made her rounds. she came across a teacher agonizing over whether to shut down his fish tank. no be, anna belle told him, there's a living thing in there -- [laughter] so this next passage involves something that shouldn't ever have to happen. it's a few months later, and anna belle has rounded up some of her best students to go to the middle school. it's looking like scores are coming up, and they need to show the middle school kids that maybe they have a reason to come to reagan. this passage, also, is going to include, um, somebody i should identify more fully, georgia square whereas daniels was the, just an incredible kid, a star a
of energy and so on. negotiations get tough, john boehner, at one point, he walks out of the room. at another point, then speaker nancy pelosi, he says i'm not a stupid man walks out of the room. this is not leadership. a leader stays engaged. he wins people over and wins them to their vision, or swedes, compromises, cajoled, does what has to be done in order to get their, where ever there is. that is one of the aspects of leadership. he is tough on his subordinates just as he is on himself. when he has acted domestically, he needs to go. the leader has a vision, too. >> i think he was determined in the face of some opticals. if you are solitary person or ceo of a corporation, it is about obstacles, overcoming adversity. getting there. you just don't give up. inspired, you keep on going. inspire yourself first and you keep going until you get there. the impossible is made possible by people with vision and determination. there is a reason why we have leaders and we don't randomly select people out of the selection process. not everyone has the quality. the question is does barack
, but the title point was great. which was, this was just raw and powerful, words and energy, which included gay sexuality in a very matter-of-fact way. they got all this attention, people were reading it and people could talk about the sexuality in a way that they had them before. >> we are talking up with christopher bram. this is the most recent book. is this your first nonfiction? >> yes, estimate of comedy writers who changed america, the first call comes from randy in salsa, oklahoma. >> how are you all doing? >> i have a question about the doj five group that was established in the 1970s. a group at the federal level and what effect it had on national security are you the fellow that was on turkey mountain? by the way, you can google this, she is the sister of a whistleblower who has been exposed to some of the activities with janet reno and so forth to when you are talking about the doj project, you are talking about the department of justice, right? >> guest: i'm not sure. >> host: peter, we will move on to you. >> caller: we are now enjoying the coolness in charleston, for a change. >>
in the energy on the tax structure of the deal more than economic merits of the investor. frequently investors to these sophisticated product offers would boast about the money they save on taxes. seldom did they throw out the rate of return from the deal. occasionally they screamed when they had to recapture taxes. my goals and the goals of the firms and individuals are worked with are simple. make money by leveraging the creativity, talent and passion of on for mores. tax rates are part of the landscape. we are looking to leverage talent, not tax breaks. we manage risks, not the tax code. preferential tax rate for capital gains and dividendss are windfall for wealthy investors. in my view the special tax treatment is neither fair nor equitable more available to any other professional endeavour. gifted teacher who is inspiring and challenging our children and enriching human capital gets no such special treatment. i would caution members of the joint committee to be skeptical when people like me to testify to you. that we give lip service to the idea of the level playing field. we make campai
as important for the nation's economy. it reduces fuel burn, saves energy, and improves the environment. implementing this improves the efficiency and safety of aviation while adding jobs and strengthening our economy. the case for next generation has been and continues to be compelling. i would, again, like to thank you, mr. chairman, ranking member costello, and the committee for hosting the panel today. i look forward to any questions you might have. thank you, again, sir. >> thank you. mr. renadli. >> thank you, mr. chairman, members of the subcommittee, thank you for holding this hearing today. it's a catch all phrase over the last ten years that means everything to everybody in the aviation community. we are proud to be involvedded in the essential stake holder in nextgen development and participates in the advisory committee which mr. barger spoke of. the committee has done an outstanding job of simpling the elevator speech of what nextgen is. using satellite technology, reducing carbon emissions, using best technology to reduce voice community cations or voice saturation on fr
. they didn't have to worry about national education policy, national energy policy, you know, terrorism policy. you just go down a whole litany of things that the modern congress which incidentally has consisted of the same number of people as the 1959. so you have more people or the same number of people trying to do so much more than they ever did. villagers of any kind just kind of destroy the institution. but i think that's one reason why the idea of returning to the old fashion -- let me say one final thing about watergate. watergate is a tribute to the upside of politically divided government. that is, richard nixon was run out of town because the democrats controlled congress. if the republicans have controlled congress this would not have happened. one of the things you do get with divided government is greater oversight of the president by the congress so that the current house of representatives is spending all of its time besides voting to repeal obamacare, trying to investigate the obama administration, and this is exactly what would be predicted. so what we have been is sep
. they have a right to the peaceful use of nuclear energy within the framework of the mpt and with a commitment, a commitment by all of these countries to honor their obligations in this respect, providing the necessary guarantees the countries of the region so as to remove any suspicion surrounding the intentions of these programs. mr. president, truth and dignity encompass in our view the framework that governs international relations. there is snow doubt that a review of these international relations will undoubtedly reveal the extent of injustice inflicted upon the african countries. i don't think i needs to go through the previous commitments that were made in this hall to both the development and economic growth in africa and through aid and investment. the world has a responsibility. the world has a responsibility to support the african efforts. beyond mere promises through providing the assistance needed to restore the treasures of african countries, restore them over executive hearings the last of which was once some form of supporting unjust regimes would assist
and getting the international energy agency to watch the iranians to make sure they don't go beyond they should be doing in the enrichment. about president has put in place very tough sanctions the toughest ever place in against iran, president obama has done that and reserved the right if absolutely necessary at the end of the day for the united states to use force. he is putting it out. he wants to focus on deputy. i worked for csh on the iran issue over three years, there's a remarkable similarity to me between the george w. bush policy in iran and the barack obama policy. i get the sense in my discussions with senators and congressman and women on capitol hill that there is a basic bipartisan support for the policy that the last two american presidents have undertaj. we don't want to go to war or open the possibility of a third land war in the middle east after afghanistan and iraq. we to focus on the diplomacy. we want to be tough minded and protect real israel and protect our finds in the arab world. i think that's what he's trying to do. i think it's a sensible policy we ough
may be a country autonomous on energy. so you will not import energy, oil, from any third country. what is the relation you have with south eurasia which you export today 10%, only 10%. with the chinese and the indians are more than 50%. now, this is the complete change of the scenario in the world. what is the reason why you have to be in this part of the world, if the reason why you came was oil and you don't need oil. the question. now, of course you cannot abandon this part of the world, the flow of oil -- [inaudible], et cetera, et cetera. but as secretary, it's not your oil but it is the oil of us you want to defend. so i think an order to avoid the vacuum, potential back in, i think we have to go hand in hand with europeans and americans because to cover and guarantee that this part of the world is stable is in the interest of both. but, of course, your pressure from your own people and say you don't have oil, you don't need oil from that part, why? israel is there. it's a different story. so i think that we have from today, not from tomorrow, from today and yesterday, to f
places where we could be focusing our energies. there are ways to prevent dropouts. we know what those are and those ways actually improve the quality of education and in the quality of instruction. it's not about the outside requirement. it's not about time requirements. it's about actually -- actual learning and instruction inside of schools. it's a problem we are solving that there are specific pathways they think to solve this. we should establish an early indicator early intervention system and we should tackle chronic absenteeism which is very related. wise and chronic absenteeism a performance measure for school? what only track that? if we did we would know, we would be able to individualize and personalize the structured support for the kids are needed and then they would not drop out. we can design alternative pathways to graduation and in relationship to what terry was saying there are a lot of different ways the kids are approaching learning particularly at that age. were in a place in a and a time now for technology and blended learning where we can provide education in a
